Palmers v Edenbridge Cricket Club Saturday 1st XI on Sat 26 Jul 2014 at 1.30
Match was Drawn

Match report Deputising once again for a sadly absent captain, TC took the side to a hot, sticky Palmers. It was a reasonably successful day – lost the toss which was a blow as the track was like a hard road ! They got off to a flyer & we toiled away for 44 overs while they racked up 275 for 5. Had to rotate the bowlers frequently, but all bowled pretty well with H picking up 3-fer, including a stunning catch by Turbo Fuller which was never in doubt ;). Unfortunately we only had ten men as Kieran was incapacitated. So that meant I was short of a keeper, &, as Luke kindly volunteered to keep having quipped "How difficult can it be ?", short of one of the better fielders in the club & short of a bowler ! Hey ho …………..

We didn’t get off to a blinding start with Matt playing on in the first over & then Ben quickly after. Otherwise everybody chipped in here & there with G Man playing particularly well for 47 but unfortunately getting out with three balls to go. Toby safely negotiated them to give us the draw. He batted well too, staying for an eternity with Graham. H had a great time batting & slashed his way to a cultured 15 to add to his three wickets, which was good fun & at a crucial time too.
Anyway, I think we mustered four bowling points & four batting points so not an entire disaster. Best thing about the day was that me & G Man were the senior pros by a country mile & felt very old, which augurs well for the future. Long may it continue so that I can be put out to the dreamy pastures of the 2s for semi retirement.
